So I’ve used up my post 911 gi bill and im trying to pursue my master’s. I enlisted in the reserves and I believes reservists are entitled to the montgomery gi bill; however, my father was also a fully disabled vet after Vietnam so that makes me eligible for the ch 35 gi bill. Am I able to use both of these benefits for my masters?

Check with VA. Although your father was a disabled veteran, GI Bill normally requires formal transfer to dependents. Drilling reservists may get Montgomery GI Bill, but there are special requirements and significant paperwork

They both have limits on how long you are eligible. I believe the disability benefits should be used first.
